A Perfect Pairing - Cycling and Prosecco!

Join Italiaoutdoors Food and Wine on one of our unique small group cycling adventures, a tour of the lovely Prosecco region and other top wine regions of the Veneto, Italy. We will visit the province of Treviso, where spring is welcomed with the Primavera del Prosecco festival, a celebration of the wine, food, art and culture of the region. We will join the local celebration as we bicycle each day through a different wine region of the Veneto, one of the largest wine producing regions in Europe, discovering the unique products of each DOC, from the world-renowned sparkling wine Prosecco, to lesser known regions such as Piave, Colli Berici, and Breganze. Wine Enthusiast named the Veneto one of the Top 10 Wine Destinations for 2012. Come visit with us!
